Also, I don't think 2 new consoles have ever launched this close to eachother before. Maybe it has happenned before but I can't think of it. Anyways I suspect that will hurt sales of both to an extent.


The Gamecube and Original Xbox launched within 3 days of each other in the US (Nov 18th and Nov 15th respectively)

It didn't really hurt them against each other (they sold about the same) since the PS2 roflstomped both of them in sales.


Hmm didn't know about that one. Though I want to point out that the 2 consoles selling about the same units in their first year is not evidence that they did not effect eachother.

PS4: 9 million

X1: 5.5 million


This seems about right to me. Almost every X1 sold will be in the US too. I'll be back in a year to verify this prediction.

Reviews are a metric of quality. Sales are a metric of popularity.

That's actually why I made this topic, to come back and look at it in a year and see how close people got.

Microsoft's inability to market to core gamers is one of the main things that put the X1 behind in preorder numbers.

As evidenced by how X1 preorders number at least twice as much as the competition.

*scratches head*

That doesn't sound right for some reason...
